THE appearance of a further edition of "Statistical Methods for Research Workers" might easily pass almost unnoticed, for nine editions have appeared at regular intervals in the last nineteen years. In fact, the cessation of this flow would be more remarkable than its continuation. Yet we may be forgiven if we take the opportunity to glance back over the career of this now standard work, since familiarity may easily lead us to overlook its effect on biological and other research.
